Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2009 Cabernet Franc is a vibrant dark cherry colour and is elegant and aromatic. There are aromas of blackcurrant and stewed cherries with forest floor characteristics. The palate is elegant and soft with luscious blackberries and black cherry flavours with muted expressions of pine and moss. A finely balanced wine with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
Production Notes
Our Cabernet Franc comes 100% from our Diamondback Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench. The 2009 Cabernet Franc was brought in at cooler temperatures and after sitting on its skins for several days, yeast was added to start fermentation. After fermenting, the Cabernet Franc spent 12 months in American oak barrels prior to bottling in May 2011.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair the Cabernet Franc with grilled portabella mushrooms, bison tenderloin, or a meaty lasagne. Try it at Miradoro Restaurant with the housemade charcuterie or the chicken salad sandwich.

Just tried this in Australia at an Canadian aboriginal art exhibition. What an outstanding example of this type of wine, beautiful depth and smoothness. Will now have to try and find it in Oz

Richly delicious on the initial nose with lingering finish. Great now, also think you could cellar it for a few years to let it develop even further. A steal @ under $20.

It's not often that a wine comes along this good at under $20. It's a delicious,rich,creamy full bodied ( in every sense of the word) wine. The first time I tried this wine was the 2007 which was great, which unfortunately sold out quickly and only managed to get a few bottles. The following year in my opinion was rather a disappointment But this year is simply devine.!! So I rushed out and bought 3 cases, that should keep us supplied until the next great year

Loved it. This was my first Cab Franc and I am so excited to try more of this varietal and to purchase some bottles of Tinhorn Creek Cab Franc! Huge in flavours, lingers on the tongue. Delightful.
